Big Picture: Olympics
DVD copied by Justin Grimes. Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). Every four years an event of breathtaking excitement, color and pageantry takes place in the world of sports--in the greatest of all athletics and competitions--the Olympic Games. In l952, American athletes performed magnificently in competition, achieving the final victory in the unofficial team standings. Contributing greatly to that victory were 80 men of our Armed Forces. Here, released for the first time on THE BIG PICTURE, is the story of our Armed Forces athletes in one of the most closely contested Olympiads of all time.
